Hi all,

First post here.

I have been waiting for this case for a long time! Great to see techPowerUp review it. One big question I have though is this:

Will the case fit two 6970s in crossfire? It looks like you would have to remove the middle HDD cage to fit the top video card, but then you'd still have a problem with the bottom fixed cage for the second video card.

Thanks

Yes they will fit (actually with some room to spare) without removing the drive bay, I've seen the case equipped with a GTX590, which is about the same length (or a slightly longer card) as HD6970, and there was a centimeter or two left to the HDD-cage.

However a HD6990 will not fit without the removal of the top drive bay.
